CACI International Inc ( NYSE:CACI) announced today that it has been awarded a $31 million task order contract to provide simulation and training solutions to the U.S. Army Reserve Command on the Mission Command Training Support (MCTS) program. The award is for three years (one base and two option years) and was issued against the OPTARSS II (Operations, Planning, Training and Resource Support Services) contract vehicle. This new work strengthens CACI’s business in the training and operations arena as well as its presence in its C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) market.
The U.S. Army Reserve Command controls and supports all Army Reserve troop units in the continental United States and prepares them for mobilization and deployment. For the MCTS program, CACI will help integrate live, virtual, and constructive simulations with Army Mission Command systems, giving commanders a better situational understanding of unit activities and capabilities in theater. CACI is providing pre- and post-mobilization training support that includes developing scenarios for battle simulations and integrating these scenarios with the Reserve Command’s digital systems, networks, and infrastructure.
As a major provider of training development services, CACI is especially qualified to perform this work and has the capability and experience to deliver mission-oriented training solutions that meet Department of Defense standards. CACI also has an in-depth understanding of the U.S. Army Reserve Command’s mission as well as the applications and functionalities of its C4 systems.
According to John Mengucci, CACI Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations, “CACI is uniquely suited to support the U.S. Army Reserve Command on the Mission Command Training Support program. Throughout our more than 50-year history, we have excelled at providing modeling and simulation solutions for the Department of Defense and U.S. forces.”CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Dan Allen said, “This new work with the U.S. Army Reserve Command grows CACI’s training capabilities and increases our footprint in our C4ISR market. It is a strong demonstration of our success in pursuing new business that aligns with our nation’s highest priorities – in this case, assuring mission readiness for our armed forces.”
